A ‘Degrassi: Next Generation’ reunion is been a while coming and we're elated to see it finally come to life!
Drake reunites with the cast from Degrassi in his new music video “I’m Upset”. The video features many of his old costars from the noughties reboot of the show, Degrassi: The Next Generation, including Shane Kippel, Nina Dobrev, Miriam McDonald, Stacey Farber, Jake Epstein, A.J. Saudin, and more, all of whom are credited next to archive footage from the original show at the end of the track. There was even Ephraim Ellis, played by Rick Murray, who shot Drake’s character Jimmy Brooks on the show, rendering him wheelchair-bound.
Looks like this may be Drake’s final word in the Pusha-T beef, which most recently saw Pusha-T release the diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” trash talking Drake, accusing both Drake and his father of being deadbeat dads. Pusha-T then released the track on Soundcloud with a photo that depicts Drake in a black face. Drake thas then cleared himself stating the shot was from an old photo shoot intended to highlight the negative portrayals of black people in entertainment history. He however declined to retaliate with a diss track of his own.
The video was directed by 22-year-old Karena Evans, the yound director has also directed “Nice For What” and SZA's "Garden (Say it Like That)".
